It's a collection of songs about love, reflection, redemption and spirituality, including some of the most powerful songs of his career. Featuring his first single in four years quot;Threaten Me with Heaven,quot; which he co-wrote with his wife, singer/songwriter Amy Grant, Dillon O'Brian and Will Owsley.
